What makes no sense is that although Maynard Jr. has apparently resigned, he is now going to form a "marketing company" and do the exact same work he has been doing for LifeLock as a "consultant."

So, exactly, what is the difference? If LifeLock has concluded that Maynard Jr. shouldn't be an employee or officer of LifeLock, why would it continue to use Maynard Jr.'s services and why would it continue to allow him to be an owner?

What is even more troubling is that LifeLock is apparently going to use Maynard Jr. as a "marketing consultant," when it was Maynard Jr.'s marketing lies that got it into trouble in the first place. If LifeLock and Todd Davis were reputable and cared anything about the truth, they would force Maynard Jr. to sell his stock, stop Maynard Jr. from making money from his lies, and completely disassociate him from LifeLock. What is that old saying about "birds of a feather"?

A more humorous note is that another of LifeLock's marketing campaigns has gone awry. As anyone who has been to LifeLock's Web page knows, Todd Davis posts his Social Security number on the site because he is so confident in LifeLock's services. Well, Todd Davis recently had his identity stolen by a thief using Davis' Social Security number, and a loan was taken out in his name.

If the service can't even prevent LifeLock's CEO from having his identity stolen, then Maynard may be the least of LifeLock's problems.

Us, too: I just want to thank the writer of the story titled "Fred Flintstone" (The Bird, June 7). In it, you mentioned Robert Maynard Jr. I hope all of Phoenix reads about the slimy scumbag.

Leave that Phil alone: I am a frequent reader of New Times, though I resent the contempt that is often shown for Phoenix Mayor Phil Gordon within your pages ("Benedict Gordon," The Bird, June 7).

For all the things that he has done to make this city a better place for young people (who I assume make up a majority of your readership), I would think New Times would be a bit more appreciative of his leadership.

The light-rail project alone should be enough to get a shining endorsement from you. It will make this city a much more exciting place to live and work, providing a safe, easy way to navigate through the city's cultural and entertainment centers. Not to mention that Gordon was also instrumental in getting an ASU campus constructed in downtown Phoenix.

I just don't understand how you can be so critical of Gordon and yet so supportive of his incredibly inexperienced opponent, Jarrett Maupin. Maupin is so inexperienced that he sent out a press release celebrating his 20th birthday that had misspelled words in it.

Sure, Maupin is young and ambitious and (supposedly) idealistic, but could he achieve the great accomplishments and policy successes of Phil Gordon? It takes more than just being young and loud to speak for young people. To me, Gordon's actions speak much louder.

Feeling no pain: How dare you tell the Mothers Against Drunk Driving to "eff" themselves ("Mad at Madd," The Bird, May 31)!

Your writer obviously has not had the pain of burying a child because idiots like him think it's okay to drink and drive. You can have a nightlife without getting so drunk you can't drive.

Today, I ordeded a pizza from Tessio's Pizza (by phone) after receiving a flyer that said voted best pizza by Phoenix New Times. I paid $14.00 plus for a pizza that I knew I would never eat after seeing the filthy, filthy, filthy conditions of that delivery/take-out joint located on the SW corner of Tatum & E Thunderbird. The walls, doors, floors and counters were disgustingly dirty!! I am no way exaggerating and it was very obvious they had not been washed in a very long time. I unseccussfully tried to find a number to complain to the healthboard. Who is Phoenix New Times anyway when it comes to rating Food?

I am very disappointed to have wasted my money on your advise if your company did indeed endorse this garbage pit.

I just wanted to say thank you for bringing the truth out in the open about the death by electrocutioner. I am an ex girlfriend of Keith E Graff and the mother of his daughter, a daughter who will never have the opportunity to have daddy walk heer down the isle or dance with her at her wedding. I couldnt believe that the police who killed Keith are still employed there but your article helped put a lot of closurre on this sad event for me because there was so many things that you wrote that even I was unaware of. Again thank you for bringing out how these cops were out to get him, not out to serve justice. You made it possible for everyone to see what really happened that night and that means the world to me and my daughter Cheyenne A Graff.

Thanks You again, Amanda Williams
